The Bulletproof Plan to Activate Untapped Brain Energy to Work Smarter and Think Faster-in Just Two Weeks
by Dave Asprey | 352 pages

Dave Asprey is a fascinating guy. He’s a professional bio-hacking machine whose publicly-stated goal is to live to 180. We covered his last book called The Bulletproof Diet and our kitchen’s pantry is filled with a bunch of his Bulletproof products. In this book, he unveils his best bio-hacks for, as the sub-title suggests, “activating untapped brain energy to work smarter and think faster.” Big Ideas we explore: Your brain on energy, kryptonite dust (what’re yours?), mitochondria (one QUADRILLION!), EZ water (how to drop into that spot between a gas and a liquid), and junk light.


“As a result of seeing one life-changing transformation after another, I decided to put the most effective practices together into a comprehensive two-week program designed to give you the fastest and most powerful results possible. It’s difficult to boil tens of thousands of hours of research down to only the most important, easy-to-follow takeaways, and that’s the challenge of creating a book like this. But my reason for writing this book is simple: the world is a better place when people are free to perform without the weight of exhaustion and wasted effort around their necks. …

No matter who you are or where you’re starting from, I know that you can squeeze a significantly greater performance out of your brain. Everything you do will require less effort, and you will become a better, more highly performing version of yourself. What would it feel like to have maximum energy to fuel your brain, your cells, and your every desire? To be more patient with the people you love, to make the best possible decisions, and to enjoy every minute of it?

There’s a name for this state where your body, mind, and emotions work together effortlessly to help you perform at levels beyond what you’ve learned to expect. I call it being Bulletproof, and I named my company after that high-performance state. And if you really want the energy to ‘bring it’ every day, it’s time to become Head Strong.”

Dave Asprey is a fascinating guy.

He’s a professional bio-hacking machine whose publicly-stated goal is to live to 180.

He has an uber-popular blog and podcast with which you might be familiar. We covered his last book called The Bulletproof Diet and our kitchen’s pantry is filled with a bunch of his Bulletproof products—from Brain Octane MCT oil to activated charcoal thingies.

In this book, he unveils his best bio-hacks for, as the sub-title suggests, “activating untapped brain energy to work smarter and think faster.”

If that sounds like fun and you’re into the whole Bulletproof concept, I think you’ll enjoy the book. (Get a copy here.)

As always, it’s packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
